FN Herstal introduces SmartCore

23rd January 2017 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


FN Herstal has introduced a new self-powered shot counter for the FN Scar family of rifles called FN SmartCore.

The system uses fully automated software to provide precise information about a firearm. It acts as an electronic logbook of the maintenance history of the firearm, along with information such as the number of shots (blank, live and dry firing being discriminated) fired, its base location, whom it is issued to and its operational condition.

The device is located inside the lower receiver of the weapon and detects firing by using the rearward movement of the moving parts. It requires no battery. 

The system can collect information automatically or upon request with no impact on the user’s mission. Any data is transmitted wirelessly at short-range only and upon request, ensuring it is undetectable and there is no unintentional emission.
